This is the Sea

This is the Sea

This feature is set in contemporary Northern Ireland. Despite the cease-fire, few people are left untouched by the history of conflict and continuing tension that grips the country. Hazel, a 20 year old from a Protestant Plymouth Brethren background falls for Malachy, a Catholic. Inevitably, their relationship becomes entangled in a web of prejudice and familial interference. Hazel and Malachy are innocents, swimming in this cauldron of manipulation,violence and revenge. In a baptism of fire, Hazel must choose sides. Their naive hope is that a new generation will emerge, breaking the shackles of a history not of their own making.
